idk how I feel about Christianity.
Let's say God or whomever witnessed the unsustainable lives of the common people.
Separated from the animal kingdom by self consciousness and action independent from instinct
they continue to live as animals. Or in many ways worse than animals as nature's limiters aren't present.
For example, separating the act of sex from reproduction and the "if it feels good do it" attitude.
So you devised a set of rules to elevate them away from the grip of nature and empower them.
However, this means that you cannot force them to obey these rules as nature forces animals to obey her rules.
It must be a conscious decision and action.
But is Christianity really the best way to approach this problem?
Words alone cannot convey experience.
Try describing to the blind or deaf from conception what it is to see or hear.
Everyone from their own experiences or for selfish reasons will interpret the dogma differently
and then go on to delude others with their interpretations.
Even if they understand perfectly, they may continue to procrastinate on long term considerations for short term pleasures.
By the time they come to experience whatever hell they have created first hand it's already too late.
A good analogy for this is the drug addict, by the time they are in complete hell they have already lost all conscious power to change.
Religion shouldn't draw people in for natural reasons such as cult-like social herding group think,
but rather for the appeal of reaching a higher state of being. I think when people witness something
greater than themselves they naturally want to become apart of it.
